Physiotherapy Q & A

What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is the manual treatment of injuries to your muscles, connective tissue, and bones. It includes a combination of manual therapies such as massage, myofascial release, whole body vibration, and hands-on stretching with exercises and stretches that you practice with Dr. Thompson and at home. 

The goal of physiotherapy is to help you recover from an injury and restore your strength, flexibility, and range of motion. Physiotherapy therapy is highly personalized, with treatments selected to address your specific needs.

Why would I need physiotherapy?

Dr. Thompson and the team at Danville Chiropractic Neurology include physiotherapy in multidisciplinary treatment plans to address a wide range of issues, including:

  • Whiplash and other causes of neck pain
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Sciatica
  • Herniated discs
  • Muscle strains
  • Tendonitis
  • Joint pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sports injuries
  • Other accident-related injuries

If you have a chronic condition such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia, physiotherapy can help you build strength in the muscles that support your painful joints, which increases support and stability. Additionally, Dr. Thompson provides treatments that can alleviate stiffness and improve your mobility.

In addition to helping you recover from a sports injury, physiotherapy can also help you build strength and flexibility to reduce your risk of recurring or future injuries. You may find that physiotherapy enables you to improve your athletic performance and become more competitive. 

What should I expect during physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a highly customized treatment modality. Dr. Thompson utilizes physiotherapies to create a personalized program to address your specific needs. 

Typically, you have one or two appointments each week to kickstart your treatment, then as your condition improves, you gradually reduce the number and frequency of your appointments. You should wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes.

During your appointments, you may have a massage or manual stretching treatment. Dr. Thompson can guide you through exercises and stretches and teach you how to practice at home to continue your progress between appointments. 

If you have a painful injury or chronic condition that’s interfering with your mobility and quality of life, call Danville Chiropractic Neurology or make an appointment online today to find out if physiotherapy is right for you.
